Email Office 365
Office365 Web App allows you to read and send emails, organize contacts, create tasks, and manage your calendar. Moreover, you can set up out-of-office notifications as well as email forwarding.
Email Addresses for WU students
You will receive a name-based address in the format firstname.lastname@example.org that will serve as your primary email address. If this address is already taken, a number will be added to your surname. In addition to that, you have a standard email address created automatically in the format "h+student-IDemail@example.com" (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please note: Students who enrolled before January 1, 2013 and have not yet been migrated to Office 365 do not have a name-based address and can therefore only be reached at "h+student-IDemail@example.com". The migration can be performed by students themselves in the Controlpanel application under > My Email > Office 365 Migration.
We recommend using Exchange as it supports the whole range of functions. Alternatively, you can access emails using IMAP. In order to set up email clients, use the following connection data:
|Setting||using Exchange||using IMAP|
|Username / Address*:||h+student-IDfirstname.lastname@example.org||h+student-IDemail@example.com|
|Password:||your account password||your account password|
|Incoming Mail Server:||automatically||outlook.office365.com|
|Encryption / Port:||automatically||SSL / 993|
|Outgoing Mail Server:||automatically||smtp.office365.com|
|Encryption / Port:||automatically||TLS / 587|
|Authentication:||automatically||My outgoing server requires authentication. Use same settings as my incoming mail server.|
* in the format firstname.lastname@example.org (please use your own student ID number here).
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I set up out-of-office notifications?
For WebApp, please refer to the Support-Page of Microsoft for instructions.
Out-of-office notifications inform people who send you emails that you cannot read your emails at the moment and tell them when you will be available again.
